09-21-2004: My buddy had been talking to some loggers the day before and had seen a couple of deer feeding on edge of weedy pasture across the road on some other property we hunt. I went in the next day to see what they were feeding on and found a large oak on edge of pasture that was loaded with acorns and acorns all over the ground, with lots of deer sign. It was a little to thick around the oak to setup so I backtracked the main trail about 40 yards to a spot I could get some clear shots. Up the tree I went with my treesuit and about 6:05 p.m. here comes this here doe. I popped her at about 12 - 15 yards, she let out a bellow and tore off in a death run. Easy blood trail about 100 yards to dead deer. The 2016 aluminum arrow with a Simmons Interceptor 2 blade from the 50 lb. Iron Mtn longbow took the doe quartering away. You can see the entry wound in the pic-the arrow completely broke the opposite side leg bone in two as it exited. Good way to start the season!
